Registration is now open for fall 2020 programs!

Our programs will look somewhat different from past years because of the Covid-19 health guidelines put forth by the VT Department of Health. A few of the key protocols are masks, physical distancing, enrollment limits, hand-washing, arranging for staggered drop-offs and pickups, and temperature-taking, among others. Also, we will be lowering the enrollment limits even more than the state guidelines to ensure maximum quality programming but are adding one additional production for the two younger age groups. We are also shortening the rehearsal times and reducing tuition fees. The teen limits are set below our own limits to keep with the governor’s guidelines. Staff will be trained and prepared to provide the safest possible experience for your child in addition to an exciting and rewarding rehearsal process and performance(s).

We understand that this can be an uncertain time to sign up now for something a few months away. We will be following the VT State Dept of Health guidelines and will make updated decisions to the status of the programs as we get closer to the start dates.  In the event of having to cancel or move programs online, we will provide refunds/price adjustments when needed. You can also request a full refund if you change your mind up to one week prior to the start date. 

Site Health and Safety Procedures: 

This provides a brief overview of the types of protocols we’ll be following, as put forth by the VT Health Department. All families who decide to send their children to our fall programs will receive detailed information about specific protocols before the first day.

  • Regular routines of handwashing, use of hand sanitizer, and staff cleaning/sanitizing throughout the day.
  • Promotion of physical distancing through keeping enrollment and staffing levels within the state guidelines and using multiple spaces within our building.
  • Use of cloth masks by staff and participants while indoors. Masks can be removed when active outdoors.
  • Daily temperature checks and health log upon arrival.
  • Requirement that any child or staff member who is sick or has a family member that shows signs of/tests positive for Covid-self quarantine by staying home from rehearsal.
